Applies to derivative products. Option strategy consisting of both puts and calls at different strike prices to capitalize on a narrow range of volatility. The payoff diagram takes the shape of a bird.
An options strategy similar to a butterfly spread. The only difference is that in a condor, the two middle options have different strike prices within the range established by the other two options. This strategy is often undertaken when an increase in volatility is expected, since it allows for positive payoffs over a relatively large range of underlying prices.
